If you think Gears of War is lame, I think your newsitem is lame. Even better, News4Gamers.com is so much better then ps3land.

TiTuS6559d ago

N4Gamers gives more reviews, previews, etc about all games coming out in the future and ps3land is a PS3 only site , i think

Dustin_c_miller20086559d ago

i like any website that gives me gaming news but this is my favorite you get to read about everything on this site.

TiTuS6559d ago (Edited 6559d ago )

This all sounds nice but how will the site remain to be at the top, well it should not stop with what its currently doing cause N4gamers is very nice indeed

PS3land just specializes in reporting PS3 news. We are not biased as we post anything related to the PS3. Someday we may move into doing things on the PSP and other Sony products. I like News4gamers although it is not all strickly the editors and journalists more that its just a news compilation like Gametab.com . And as soon as PS3 games start coming out we are going to update the review page. We actually are only about 65% done with the back end source coding for PS3land. We are going to launch everything here in a few months before the launch of the PS3. Then we will be up there as #1 for PS3 news.

AA Games Deserve More Attention Than AAA Titles

While AAA games make headlines all over the internet, AA games are quietly and profoundly impacting the gaming industry with their creativity.

No sh!t, like that's one thing that I will give the modern game industry is the re-uprising of the mid-tier. It's not as big as it was during the PS2 like Golden era of the mid-tier, but it's pretty damn good at the moment.

Inverno8h ago

Can we even call half of these games mid-tier when they're just 10 dollars short of full price? And if we're talking about indies that charge around 30 bucks, do many of these games honestly deserve the praise when so many chose the E.A. approach? They mention Hellblade 2 in the article, how can a game that took 5 years to make be considered "mid-tier"? Who knows what that budget was with how much work went into the visuals and sound design and mo-cap.

Michiel19898h ago

what's wrong with the early access approach? Supergiant games got so much help from the community and took the feedback to heart and created one of the best roguelikes. The early access that you pay 40 bucks to play the game earlier is awful, but this is actually super beneficial for the devs and also the gamers. Same with DoS2 and Baldur's gate 3.

Inverno8h ago

@Michiel
There are few exceptions in E.A. but let's look at The Rogue Prince of Persian. Why in the factual is an Ubi funded game in E.A.? There are games that are in early access for years, I'm talking 7-8 years. Look at 7 Days to Die, apparently it's coming out of E.A. and they're charging 54 bucks for the 1.0 version on consoles. Crowd funding also brought in a lot of problems, with many games funded turning out crap or then later signing a deal with a publisher regardless. The "mid-tier" market has a lot of shady business practices.

isarai3h ago

Well im not talking these games but the mid-tier in general, games like the sniper elite series, RoboCop, Alan Wake 2, Lies of P, Stellar Blade, Alone in the Dark, etc it's far better than it was a gew years ago where everything was either a huge AAA game or a simple lo-fi indie game, and there was very little in between.

StormSnooper12h ago

I have enjoyed some amazing AA gaming this gen, and the Portal has been a surprising catylist for me getting into these.

jznrpg9h ago

I give good games attention. AA or AAA doesn’t matter to me.

Eonjay9h ago

This. Why does everything have to be this vs that? Good game is good and deserves attention.

Abnor_Mal8h ago

War, war never ends.

War! Huh yea good gosh y’all,
what is it good for?
Absolutely nothing!

LucasRuinedChildhood7h ago(Edited 7h ago)

I suppose the general point is that *overall* AA games deserve more attention right now because of how much good stuff they're putting out. Doesn't mean that you shouldn't give good AAA games attention. The point about attention stands even if you remove the whole AAA vs AA angle.

Indie and AA games just don't count for a huge swathe of the audience. They ignore them or the lack of marketing never drags them in. And many who praise the PS1 and PS2 for smaller, original games and proclaim games to be bad now also don't play these games. The hypocrisy of that is starting to really irritate me, tbh, especially as quality 3D indie games have become common.

Supporting AA games can also slowly give those studios a higher budget to work with while still being creative, and you eventually end up with things like Larian becoming AAA.

VersusDMC7h ago

Hades sold 7 mil on steam alone. Disco Alysium 2.7 just on steam. Plague tale Requiem(is this even AA?) is at 3 mill. How did they not get attention?

And Forespoken is on the attention getting side? It bombed! What a idiotic thumbnail.

SMTVengence is a game that is getting overlooked. Put that on the thumbnail.

LucasRuinedChildhood7h ago(Edited 6h ago)

Here are some examples of some smaller games that I'd recommend people give a go:

- Metal Hellsinger
- Katana Zero
- The Talos Principle 2
- Bomb Rush Cyberfunk
- Rollerdrome
- Trepang2
- Tinykin
- Another Crab's Treasure
- Sifu
- Ghostrunner
- Penny's Big Breakaway
- The Pathless
- Kena: Bridge Of Spirits
- Midnight Fight Express
- Jusant
- Solar Ash
- Outer Wilds
- Furi
- Superhot
- The Forgotten City
- Crow Country
- Signalis

And obviously stuff like Hotline Miami but that's an obvious choice. Great game

It's gotta be Far Cry 2 for me, the feeling of that game I'm still yet to find again, just everything about it, I'd kill for a remaster, I'd even be happy with just a bump in resolution and frame rate, occasionally go back to it, think I'm gunna have to do just that now 😂

porkChop12h ago

A remaster of Far Cry 2 would be amazing, especially with the mods that fixed the broken stealth system and the dumb checkpoint respawns. Include those fixes and it would be a huge upgrade over the original.

JEECE12h ago

Enemies respawn in Far Cry 2? Terrible! It's a broken system! Make me a one-man army who can inexplicably hold an entire region!

Enemies respawn in Dark Souls and Zelda? Brilliant! So much more hardcore! Glad the devs took risks!

porkChop8h ago

The problem isn't them respawning. It's that they respawned after just 5 minutes. Like you'd still be in the area looking for diamonds, loot, exploring, etc, and the enemies would just respawn with you there.
